The Benevolent Republic of Castelia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Gregor Constance with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 4.144 billion Castelians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castelia City. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Castelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,006 trillion mordons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 242,782 mordons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,191,357 per year while the poor average 28,317, a ratio of 42.1 to 1.

High school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in Castelia, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, and Castelian scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack. Crime is totally unknown. Castelia's national animal is the Grey wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Castelia is ranked 3,600th in the world and 8th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 3,007.66 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
